d 13? thats a itty bitty guy


i would swap it, even another d would be an upgrade


depending on where you live and what year it is there is prob a drop in without too much hassle that will be a much better starting platform

the cheapest way to get better acceleration and the cheapest is weight reduction. make sure to keep it tuned up and unless you wana spend money i say a ebay header and a custom cold air intake. but your going turbo later on the header is a waste lol :td:

sorry thought you said d15. im not sure if they make a header for the d13.
